Even since Hardik Pandya took the captaincy of the Mumbai Indians team by replacing Rohit Sharma, many fans have attacked him on social media. Fans did not spare Hardik Pandya even inside the stadium during MI’s first two games in IPL 2024.

Earlier, the MI skipper was booed by the Ahmedabad crowd during the team’s opening game vs Gujarat Titans. In the previous clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad too, fans inside Rajiv Gandhi Stadium bored the MI skipper as he arrived on the field to bat.
